"No one can be free if he is not independent...."

The indirect aims of the Montessori practical life exercisesis to meet the child's needs, to encourage and facilitate development, and to facilitate the child's adaptation to the world.

" If teaching is to be effective with young children, it must assist them to advance on the way to independence. It must initiate them into those kinds of activities, which they can perform themselves.  We must help them to learn how to walk without assistance, to run, to go up and down the stairs, to pick up fallen objects, to dress and undress, to wash themselves, to express their needs, and to attempt to satisfy their desires through their own efforts.  All this is part of an education for independence. "....(The Discovery of the Child, MM, pg. 56~57)

Montessori practical life teachings are simple Montessori exercises that adults perform daily in order to maintain control of the environment in which they live and work.  The child is influenced by the adult's daily routine and activities.  By imitating these practical life exercises, it is the child's way of adapting to the world around him and constructing reality.
